- Café Culturel presents… Paper Movies: Comic Book Culture. Tuesday October 2nd from 6.30 pm — 8.30 pm, LCB Depot, Leicester. While Hollywood has had to repackage their old classics, and the bestselling books are written by celebrity chefs, comics are overflowing with creativity. No longer the preserve of adolescent boys, contemporary comics explore a wide variety of theme’s from realism to surrealism, from action packed fun to serious issues often rarely tackled by other art forms. Yet comics have still to penetrate popular consciousness any further than a general knowledge that they were inspiration for well-known films. Will comics maintain their niche or find a catalyst that offers them as the only credible alternative to a staid mainstream? Join us to discuss these questions and more at Café Culturel. Cafe Culturel is a free event occurring on the first Tuesday of every month.
